â€¢ The important quantity for many purposes is the energy density of the
magnet.
1.3 Magnetic properties - reminder
â€¢ There are two ?elds to consider:
â€“ The magnetic ?eld H which is generated by currents according to
Ampèreâ€™s law. H is measured in A m
-1
(Oersteds in old units)
â€“ The magnetic induction, or magnetic ?ux density,B, which gives the
energy of a dipole in a ?eld, E =-m.B and the torque experienced
by a dipole momentm asG=m×B. B is measured in Wb m
-2
or
T (Gauss in old units).

â€¢ oscillate sample up and down
â€¢ measure emf induced in coils A and B
1.5. EXPERIMENTAL DATA 5
â€¢ compare with emf in C and D from known magnetic moment
â€¢ hence measured sample magnetic moment
1.5 Experimental data
â€¢ In the ?rst 60 elements in the periodic table, the majority have negative
susceptibility â€“ they are diamagnetic.
1.6 Diamagnetism
â€¢ Classically, we have Lenzâ€™s law, which states that the action of a magnetic
?eld on the orbital motion of an electron causes a back-emf which opposes
the magnetic ?eld which causes it.
â€¢ Frankly, this is an unsatisfactory explanation, but we cannot do better
until we have studied the inclusion of magnetic ?elds into quantum me-
chanics using magnetic vector potentials.
â€¢ Imagine an electron in an atom as a charge e moving clockwise in the x-y
plane in a circle of radius a, area A, with angular velocity ?.
â€¢ This is equivalent to a current
I =charge/time= e?/(2p),
so there is a magnetic moment
µ= IA= e?a

/2.
â€¢ The electron is kept in this orbit by a central force
